THE BEST GROUP MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM FOR MSPs, VARs and ITSPs
Are you looking to save on your business expenses while retaining your independence? The Canadian Office Products Association provides the best ROI for VARs, MSPs and ITSPs.
BUYING GROUPS vs. COPA
Unlike Buying Groups that charge big fees and infringe on your independence and competitive advantage, COPA can save you BIG dollars on some of your recurring business expenses, including shipping, debit and credit card merchant rates, gas, insurance, and so much more.
More and more VARs, MSPs, and ITSPs are disappointed with buying groups and other group membership organizations that fail to deliver on their promises. Instead of lower credit merchant rates, better discounts from distributors, deeper discounts from vendors, and business expense savings, they’re getting:
Increased credit card merchant rates;
Fluctuating pricing levels from distributors and no availability with preferred suppliers;
Unimpressive discounts from vendors that leave little margin and far less price differentiation, much less to even sustain added margins from the buying group; and
No competitive advantage as value-adds are continually transferred to the group to make everyone equal and harmonized—not good for business!
For the many companies cancelling their memberships and leaving these groups, the general consensus is simply that the fee did not justify the return on benefits and they did not want to give up on their business independence and competitive advantage.
TRY THE COPA DIFFERENCE

For a reasonably low annual fee, you get the full benefits without any games. If you were to analyze the cost savings to your company from COPA’s membership benefits, you will quickly see that the ROI is many times over. But, that’s not all! TechnoPlanet and COPA have established a mass buy-in deal so any VAR, MSP or ITSP in Canada that joins can access these savings!
